Draft @ Mikkeller Bar SF on 1/19/15. Pours a red, brown color with minimal head. Aroma is acidic, red grapes, malt, and brett. Medium to thin bodied. Taste is vinegar-like acidity with tones of cherry, grape and funk with a bitter finish. Decent flanders red.

Thanks! Pleasant at colder temperatures, but vinegar becomes overly potent as it warms toward room temperature, and acetone brings the beer down. Still, there are some pleasant vinous, oak, and oxidation notes. Firmly sour but tending too far toward the acetic end of the spectrum, even for the style. The beer was nearly still and I think some carbonation would have livened things up. I was told this bottle was a few years old.
